New England Fiber Festival

So in the midst of my powerless week, I drove up to Springfield, Mass to attend the second annual New England Fiber Festival.

I had mentioned I was going and wish I had gotten a room to spend the weekend.  The hotels were all booked because of the power outage.  But luckily, Meg offered me the pull down couch in her room.  Yeah!  So I joined a bunch of strangers for the weekend….and I was warm, and I ate, and I laughed and I crocheted, and I knitted and I made some friends!  They are an awesome bunch of people!!

I met up with my friend, Laura and her Hubs and daughter on Saturday and walked around the festival.

Madcolor was there in her awesomely AWESOME granny square dress!

Some alpacas were planking
